The lives, secrets and ambitions of five immigrant women working in an East Los Angeles sewing factory are the next special exhibition at Living Arts of Tulsa. Tulsa Latino Theater Company brings the play Real Women Have Curves to the gallery at 307 E. Brady St., for two performances. The play by Josefina Lopez inspired the 2002 film starring America Ferrera as Ana, a young Mexican-American woman who dreams of getting out of the barrio and becoming an important writer as she and her factory co-workers struggle to meet an impossible work order deadline. Tulsa Latino Theater Company may be a newcomer to Tulsa arts, but company coordinator Shadia Dahlal isn’t – Dahlal has presented her Tulsa Folkloric Dance Theatre at the annual SummerStage Festival in past years, and brings her latest venture to the inaugural SummerStage Tulsa Fringe for two performances. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 27, and Saturday, June 28. Tickets are $12-$15. For more, visit www.livingarts.org.
